Gerry and JFLL,

For periodicals in general, John Mark Ockerbloom over at has done a lot of work indexing. He is "site agnostic" (ie. not just Internet Archive) so has links from all over.

He recommends that interested persons would "adopt" a serial/periodical, which includes indexing it (among other things), then use his site as a central place to post the list in a regular format - I've just sent him my `Notes and Queries` list since his is incomplete. It's a slightly awkward system as you have to submit a form to do updates (and it appears backlogged), and much of it is out of date. A Wiki that anyone can edit would be a better way to do it IMO.

The above link has it's own inherent flaws - I wanted to look up Harper's Magazine - so it's list send me to Cornell Univeristy where I have to log in, second link sends me to Harper's Magazine where for $17 I can look up old records from their mag. Huh? So much for free access.
